California Baptist University made two first-half goals stand up for a 2-0 women’s soccer exhibition victory over Cal State San Bernardino Thursday at the Lancers’ field.
Fabiola DaSilva assisted on both goals for the Lancers as Jacquelyn Witz put CBU up 1-0 in the 16th minute with a shot inside the near post. Lizzy Bendrick converted DaSilva’s corner kick into a goal in the 37th minute.
The Coyotes had just two shots on goal, both in the second half. Scoring attempts by freshman Casey Hirsch and junior Ashley Salas were stopped by CBU keeper Brittany Buchanan. Overall, CBU outshot the Coyotes 14-8.
Redshirt freshman Tiffany Mallick and senior Shawna-Rei Kam split time in goal for the Coyotes, each making one save. Only four of CBU’s 14 shots were on goal.
CSUSB Head Coach Diego Bocanegra was not disappointed by the score. “The match gave us an opportunity to look at everybody on the team,” he said. Twenty Coyotes saw playing time in the match.
The Coyotes complete their pre-season exhibition play on Saturday at 4 p.m. at Coyote Premier Field against Biola University, a 1-0 winner in its season opener earlier this week.
